Tebow on Hernandez: 'Heartbreaking,' 'Sad'

New England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow said it was “heartbreaking” and “sad” when asked to comment on Aaron Hernandez’s murder trial on Friday at training camp.

Tebow was Hernandez’s college teammate at Florida, and Hernandez chose to attend the school specifically because of Tebow. They remained close friends.

When asked for more comments or if he has been in touch with Hernandez since he was charged with the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd, Tebow repeatedly said, “we’ve been advised not to talk about” the situation. 

Tebow said his thoughts and prayers went out to all of the families involved.
